What a fun experience. Just a wonderful ballpark with so many great amenities, great food (including fruit stands!) including batting cages that you can use during the game! Ten pitches for five bucks, two different speeds. Also, if you like baseball you have to check out the Reds Hall of Fame, adjacent to the ballpark. Very cool.

“Awesome baseball park”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

If you like baseball, you must visit Great American Ballpark. The park is fantastic!! Great video screen in the outfield and great location on the river! Many $5 seats available in the upper deck & no bad seats!

“GABP Private Suites Rock”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

We never tire of visiting one of the best ballparks in the USA! We especially love it when we are blessed with a parking pass and a private suite to enjoy the game as the guests of others. If you have a special occasion and don't mind spending the $$$ a private suite is one of the best ways to see baseball at its best. Indoor and outdoor seating, your own suite attendant, 3 TV's (yes we could watch Olympic events and the game), private lavatory, cushy leather club chairs, granite topped counters all contribute to a luxurious atmosphere in which to not only enjoy the game but socialize and do business at the same time. We loved our food and beverage options selected by our suite host and our suite attendant quickly brought the extra couple of bottles of wine that were needed for our non beer drinking guests. He also made certain that everyone had the giveaway of the evening and made sure that our first time attendees at GABP received their certifications. He went above and beyond for one of our little guests finding her a Red's t-shirt! Suites hold 12-16 guests and believe it or not - they are not all sold and you can rent them for individual games! There is much to love about GABP. We are also season ticket holders and love the opportunity to take advantage of the Riverfront Club for a quick or leisurely meal or beverages. I think we've sat in every type of seat from inexpensive to the top and the experience is terrific. Surrounding restaurants and bars make for a wonderful pre or post game event and everything is clean and family friendly. We're looking forward to our next game and hope the winning streak continues.

My boyfriend and I traveled to Cincinnati, it was a first time trip for both of us, to see the Reds play the Cardinals on Friday and Saturday night last month. The park was impressive. There is an escalator to the top along with a sidewalk that wraps all the way up if you prefer to walk. Do not walk!! It is an exhausting walk, you just never get to the top. The fans are so so - some of them were totally out of line. But the spectacular thing we got to view were the fireworks after the Friday night show. Every Friday night homegame, there is an AMAZING firework show afterwards over the Ohio River. It last almost an hour. A different player gets to choose music for each game. It is perfectly synced with the fireworks. It was extremely romantic!

“Nice Park”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Good amenities! Great fans and very friendly staff ( better than any ballpark I have experienced). Easy access from Town. Not much of a view ( PNC park in Pittsburgh and the Ball park in San Francisco are better). Comparable to Camden Yards in feel and especially with all that is going on outside the venue ( bars, brew pubs, restaruants, etc)
